No Mercy for the Ferry

Mabua Bali-Lombok Ferry Suspends Service until April.

(3/22/2003) In another indication that visitor numbers are down dramatically in Bali, the management of the P.T. Mabua Intan Express, operators of the MV Mabua Express have announced that dwindling passenger numbers traveling between Bali and Lombok have compelled the Company to suspend services until April 04, 2003.

The suspension took effect from January 7, 2003.

The 248-passenger fast ferry water jet service operates normally on a daily basis between Bali port of Benoa and Lombok's main port of Lembar.

Communication across the Lombok Straits will still be possible during the suspension of service by Mabua, with fast ferry services available from Bounty Cruises and on almost hourly basis on public car ferries sailing from Bali's east coast port at Padang Bai.
